My Mod Hair Ken, Dave, did not
come with his original outfit. I
like to dress my dolls in the era
they are from, whether an original
vintage outfit or homemade, and
his loud checked jacket and turtle-
neck SCREAMED 70's.
I thought about trying to find his
outfit on eBay but figured I
needed more practice making Ken
clothes so decided to make a similar
I had a black/green check that was about
the right scale. I made black pants and a
black long sleeve turtleneck.
The pants fit great, I used my go to 60's
vintage pattern for them. The jacket
and turtleneck are also a vintage pattern
from the 70's but seem a little large.
The sleeves on the turtleneck were
really long and if I make again will
need to be shortened. The jacket
body was very large and boxy but
the sleeves were just about right.
For a first try on the jacket it's not to
bad, the turtleneck is good.
Dave is ready to go out on the town!
